Star Trek: Nemesis (2002) - Synopsis
In the proud tradition of the most successful franchises in entertainment history, "Star Trek Nemesis" is the latest intergalactic adventure to join its triumphant predecessors. Growing at warp speed since its inception in 1966, the Star Trek motion picture franchise has earned a collective worldwide gross exceeding $1 billion at the box office and has generated well over $3. 5 billion from consumer products. With the success of Star Trek: The Experience, a 65,000-square-foot Las Vegas theme park, which has greeted over 2. 2 million visitors since its launch in 1998, and given the fact that ten "Star Trek" books are sold every sixty seconds, one thing is universally clear -- when it comes to "Star Trek" . . . there simply is no final frontier.
In "Star Trek Nemesis," Captain Jean-Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) and the Enterprise crew find themselves on a diplomatic mission to initiate peace with the Romulans. But upon arrival on the alien planet, the crew is faced with a threat that could lead to Earth's destruction, and Picard meets his most dangerous adversary yet, a surprisingly personal nemesis.

Riker), Brent Spiner (Lieutenant Commander Data), LeVar Burton (Lieutenant Commander Geordi LaForge), Michael Dorn (Lieutenant Commander Worf), Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher) and Marina Sirtis (Counselor Deanna Troi).
